October is for Pumpkin Stuff
Happy Monday ya'll! I hope everyone is soaking up the end of October. I am thrilled for October to end because that means Christmas is that much closer! I love October though for many reasons, one of them is that I have an excuse to use pumpkin excessively.
Pumpkin is basically a god. I make sure I have at least one can of organic pumpkin puree on hand at all times.
I really love pasta, and with the colder months coming I started to crave it. So, I incorporated pumpkin and pasta in the same dish. How could you go wrong?
Gnocchi with Pumpkin Sauce
This was the perfect combination of hearty and filling. I felt so satisfied after, but still could eat so much more.
- Vegan Gnocchi from TJ's
- Home made Pumpkin Sauce
- 1/4 cup pumpkin puree
- 4 tbs tomato paste
- 1/4 tomato, chopped
- 1/4 onion chopped
- 1 cup vegetable broth
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp pepper
- 1 tbs cummin
- 1 tsp chili powder
- 1 tsp nutritional yeast

- Add Gnocchi to a boiling pot, cook on boil until they all float to the top
- Add all your wet ingredients for the sauce to a sauce pan, bring to a boil
- Add dry ingredients, bring to a simmer

I hope everyone enjoys this pumpkin-awesome recipe!
